Psychosomatic nature of diabetes
There’s a biblical proverb that reads: “As a man thinks in his heart, so is he” – it’s a statement that holds a lot more truth than we often give it credit for – particularly when it comes to the link between our minds and our bodies. Dr John Demartini has spent close on 4 decades studying and enlightening us on the psycho-somatic nature of human beings.
Dr John Demartini will be joining Dr Mol in studio to discuss the subject of diabetes.
Lifestyle factors that may put you at risk:
- Depression or persons who experienced significant life events increased the risk for type 2 diabetes by 37 to 60%.
- Excessive overtime has been reported to be associated with 4-fold higher risk of type 2 diabetes in Japanese men.
- Short duration of sleep (less than 5 to 6 hours per night) has shown an increased risk for type 2 diabetes
The many symptoms that you experience in your body are your body’s way of trying to reveal the areas in your life where you have imbalanced perceptions. So disease is not necessarily a ‘bad’ thing and it is wise to discover the underlying meaning. If you bring your perceptions into balance, you can normalise your physiology and your body will return to wellness.
That is why medicine is both an art and a science – we’re complex human beings, not simple biological machines. The message that rings most true for me from our discussion is a reminder to get to the route cause of the problem, don’t just treat the symptoms superficially.
